Dhamma's right on.

It was brought down not long after the SBD's were pulled from streaming here. Didn't take long for the suits to realize there were other sites that offered very easy (and free) access to SBD's. Torrent sites have remained the last true bastion of the digital trading community.

Well not exactly,

You are both right that speedingarrow went down in 2008, however they set up shop again, i think as speedingarrowlives for a while. I think that place was shutdown recently. There was also a site called sharpened arrow, which i can't say i ever visited but, i think it was a forum that also had some downloads.

This exchange with germain in 2009, was a hint that the arrow hadn't completely died. check out his last comment.

Because the p2p nature of torrenting makes it considered to be person-to-person trading, as opposed to centrally hosted downloads. It is a fairly important technical difference, between the availability of torrents depends on individual users to seed the shows, rather than a collection of servers like the IA has.

I am very glad the band keeps this policy.
